class Fl_Value_Input

Class Hierarchy

Include Files

    #include <FL/Fl_Value_Input.H>


The Fl_Value_Input widget displays a numeric value. The user can click in the text field and edit it - there is in fact a hidden Fl_Input widget with type(FL_FLOAT_INPUT) or type(FL_INT_INPUT) in there - and when they hit return or tab the value updates to what they typed and the callback is done.

If step() is non-zero and integral, then the range of numbers is limited to integers instead of floating point numbers. As well as displaying the value as an integer, typed input is also limited to integer values, even if the hidden Fl_Input widget is of type(FL_FLOAT_INPUT).

If step() is non-zero, the user can also drag the mouse across the object and thus slide the value. The left button moves one step() per pixel, the middle by 10 * step(), and the right button by 100 * step(). It is therefore impossible to select text by dragging across it, although clicking can still move the insertion cursor.

If step() is non-zero and integral, then the range of numbers are limited to integers instead of floating point values.

Fl_Value_Input widget.


Fl_Value_Input::Fl_Value_Input(int x, int y, int w, int h, const char *label = 0)

Creates a new Fl_Value_Input widget using the given position, size, and label string. The default boxtype is FL_DOWN_BOX.

virtual Fl_Value_Input::~Fl_Value_Input()

Destroys the valuator.

Fl_Color Fl_Value_Input::cursor_color() const
void Fl_Value_Input::cursor_color(Fl_Color)

Get or set the color of the text cursor. The text cursor is black by default.

uchar Fl_Value_Input::soft() const
void Fl_Value_Input::soft(uchar)

If "soft" is turned on, the user is allowed to drag the value outside the range. If they drag the value to one of the ends, let go, then grab again and continue to drag, they can get to any value. The default is true.

Fl_Color Fl_Value_Input::textcolor() const
void Fl_Value_Input::textcolor(Fl_Color)

Gets or sets the color of the text in the value box.

Fl_Font Fl_Value_Input::textfont() const
void Fl_Value_Input::textfont(Fl_Font)

Gets or sets the typeface of the text in the value box.

void Fl_Value_Input::textsize(uchar)
